In the management room of the Lafayette Supermarket, Nadia storms in, huffing and stomping, scowling, and with murderous desire in her eyes.
Jacques enters behind her, and shortly after, a mocking Thierry.
“My baby girl, you need to calm down.”
“I DON’T WANT TO CALM DOWN!” Nadia screams at the top of her lungs, “Thierry, from what porn catalog did you hire those whores to be some modest, conservative housewives who do the grocery shopping for the family?”
Thierry bares his teeth in the street, “Little sis, you are to blame. You hired a super-handsome guy to be the hard-working, ordinary man of the house. I have to hire a beauty to match. I can't hire an ugly woman ‘cause nobody would accept the commercial!”
Jacques scratches his head, “Thierry has a point, daughter. That young man, Rodrigo Mountain... is too sensual to be an ordinary householder. If we're going to appeal to beauty, t
At the Lafayette supermarket, Thierry and Nadia continue to ‘talk’.“Brother, did you mention Rodrigo on purpose?”“I didn't know you had such prevention.” Thierry scoffs.“I have no prevention!” Nadia defends herself, “I don't have to explain anything to you.”“But I have to explain everything to you, huh?” Thierry crosses his arms, “Tell me, were you the one who reported me to our father about my disguise in Happiness Slum?”“Our mother and I worked together.” Nadia smiles victoriously, “And we saved you from going to jail for molesting a minor.”“I already said that I don't want to commit indecency with her, damn it!” Thierry kicks a chair.Nadia continues smiling, “Now I understand. You're upset because you're being forced to work, dress like normal people, have your hair and beard trimmed, and so you've de
William is helping with the service at the pizzeria. Since he has been around town a lot, he now stands at the till to collect payment from satisfied customers. He turns on the radio and Faith Hill's song “Breathe” encourages people to eat.“Send my congratulations to the pizza maker, Mr. Campos.”“And we appreciate the preference, come back often!” William beams with money flowing smoothly into the cash register.He also provided machines for customers to swipe credit cards.Caio approaches with more orders, “Dad, is Tommaso coping?”“I hope so, but we hire helpers.” William claims, taking the orders, “Another Portuguese pizza!”“And how was your wandering around the city?” Caio asks blinking.“No one is willing to admit the truth if that's what you're thinking.” William returns the wink, “The Mountain family is a bunch of evil-doers and schemers and I fear very much for your aunt in Victoria.”“I think it might be better for Aunt Melissa to be out of the net of intrigue,” Caio sugge
“There are many things you can do.” Josias paternally asserts to Reuben, “For example, you can be like your Uncle Wally, head of a team of builders.”“Cool…” Reuben's eyes are twinkling.“You can study architecture and urbanism at university.” Alan decides to help, “Who knows, when Octavio retires...”Josias nods at his son's suggestion, “That's right, Alan. So you guys work together at headquarters.”“Imagine: James would be the CFO, Caio would be the Head of Engineering, Junior would be in Public Relations...” Alan feels a lump in his throat.“What is it, son?”“I was going to mention J.J.” Alan feels his voice shaking, “Dad, why did my brother have to die?”“He didn't HAVE to die, Alan.” Josias is moved, “It was an accident.”Reuben scratches his head, “Then why is Claud
At the Montanha Penthouse, Elza visits Diane to chat. The two have tea in the living room.“I miss Melissa and Kelvin.” Diane comments with a sigh, “They were the lifeblood of this penthouse.”Elza hints, “Too bad they had to go so far, huh?”“But it was for a good cause.” Diane smiles, “They are now running the new branch of the Crystal Blue restaurant.”“And do you intend to open more restaurants around?” Elza asks like someone who didn't want anything too much.But Diane grows suspicious of the visitor's questions, “It depends if business continues to boom...”“Pray that all goes well in Victoria.” Elza smiles mysteriously, “Or Melissa would have to go back and risk being my daughter-in-law again.”Diane's hands are shaking, making the cup rattle, “What are you talking about, Elza?”“You know…
In Daryl's office in Crystal Blue, he's enjoying Elton John's song “I Want Love” coming out of his computer speakers. He just got an email from Kelvin saying everything is fine in Victoria.Diane walks in and finds her husband like, “I'm glad you're smiling. Will we have good service today?”“All tables are booked.” Daryl extends the smile to his beloved wife, “So, are you pregnant?”Diane heaves a long, hopeless sigh, “I'm thinking of checking myself again. Or I must say long prayers in the Cathedral.”“Don't worry, darling, when we least expect it, you start to pass out and throw up.” Daryl jokes, “Kelvin sent me an email saying everything is fine.”“Good, dear.” Diane sits down, “I had a visit from Elza. She apparently wanted to chat and fit in with the new neighbor, but I don't know how, the conversation turned to Kelvin, Melissa, and why they
At Rocha Constructions, Josias has fun with Cláudio's exasperation.“What is it, partner? Why are you nervous?”“Why do you always think that a strong and attractive man is fatally a creep? I don't need to ‘chase’ any ‘helpless’ maiden, they are the ones who kneel at my feet begging for attention, just as Kate acted one day, back in 1998.”Josias breaks his smile at the mention of his late wife, “Leave my wife out of this.”“You were the one who started mentioning her. I just want to defend myself from the eternal pervert accusation. They even hinted that I’d try something with your ten-year-old daughter, how disgusting!”“OK, Claudio, I can't answer for the others, but I admit that I also had a bad impression of you. But you're not going to get justice by making a fuss to the media, posing as wronged as if I don't care about the death of my son and my wife.&
The day of the birth of Jane and Octavio's baby arrived.It was precisely on the day that Jane rested the most, according to Dr. Silvana’s instructions.She was at the hospital talking to a revamped Dr. Antenor, “My comrade, you look five years younger! Where are the dark circles, the stooped posture, and the yellow teeth?”“Come on, Silvana, did you want to see me ugly forever?” Antenor laughs, and then leans in closer as if sharing a secret, “I paid off my credit card debt!”“The one that was going for more than R$1,000.00?”“Exactly!” Antenor vibrates, “Actually, I paid R$800.00 because the bank gave me a discount for paying in cash.”Silvana is surprised, “I thought you had paid in installments! Antenor, have you finally hit the lottery?”Antenor grimaces, “I stopped burning money on this sh*t. No, friend, don't we get our salary? I've
Alfred, Tiago, Carmen, and Lorraine are outside just listening to Jane scream to deliver her son into the world.Lorraine tenses, “Will I be in the same situation when Ivan wants his heir?”Carmen smiles, “You can opt for a cesarean, my friend.”Lorraine giggles, “I think option #1 is the best.”Suddenly, a baby cry is heard.“YEAH!” Everyone applauds, “It worked!”The door opens and Octavio comes out, wearing a mask, cap, and blue gown, “My baby boy was born, everyone!”“Congratulations!” Alfred hugs him tightly.Elza and Vernon appear in a bit of a hurry, “Oh, looks like we got there just in time, or we missed the best part, dear.”Lorraine turns to Vernon, “If hearing the terrifying screams was the best part, then you definitely missed it.”Elza is moved, “How is she, Octavio?”“V
